In Kevin Bacon terms: Bryk played in The American Flag with Paul Aucoin, who produced the Golden Dogs new CD “Big Eye Little Eye”, which was released in Canada by True North Records (label home of former Bryk drummer Howie Beck) and in the US by local NC label Yep Roc. Dave and Jessica from The Dogs sing backups on The Bicycles “The Good The Bad and the Cuddly”, which was produced by… Bryk.
Dan and Corey will be live on Toronto’s Commercial Alternative Powerhouse 102.1 The Edge (us old timers still call it CFNY) this Friday around 6:15 PM to talk about their alleged careers and their “big Toronto show” at C’est What? (also this Friday, starting around 10 PM, with Noyan Hilmi of Five Blank Pages representing for the 905).
This is been a serious life-long dream of Bryk’s, as they will chat with Toronto indie music icon Dave Bookman, and have promised not to swear as much as they do on their records. CFNY has a live stream for you out-of-towners.
Bryk has two Triangle radio interviews booked this month: the first at The Triangle’s News and Information Station WPTF 680 (“the home of Rush Limbaugh in the Triangle”, no, really) this Saturday July 21 at 10pm, as a guest on the Bob Langford show. We’re chatting about the local music scene, etc… not politics! (Sorry, out-of-towners, no webcast, but we’ll try to tape it for posterity.)
He will also appear (and perform live) on Ross Grady‘s WXDU show, Sunday July 29th between 5 and 7. That show will be webcast.
Discount Store entered the WXDU chart at #24 this week, and was a new add last week at WXYC Chapel Hill. It’s currently in (and we quote) “heavy rotation” at WKNC.
Finally, here’s some early Discount Store bloggery:
Mr. Beckwith, who also writes the N&O’s “Under The Dome” state politics blog claims to have figured out Bryk/tha Commish’s dual identity by following his email IP like breadcrumbs… but we know that one of you gave us up 😉
Tha Commissioners have clocked over 2000 myspace hits since yesterday morning. Cherry Berry is not only free to play and download, but appears as a hidden bonus track on Bryk’s new EP Discount Store.
